Tour Edge Exotics DG Tour Series Putter is Personally Crafted for Feel and Performance
More isn’t always better, less strokes on the greens means lower scores.

Batavia, IL – The lineage of the David Glod putters continues with artful conception in the new Tour Edge Exotics David Glod Tour Series putters. Personally designed and hand crafted by president and founder David Glod to meticulous detail. In true Exotics fashion, David Glod Tour Series putters are truly one of a kind.

“Putters are the most personal club in a golf bag. My new Tour Series Putters have been a labor of love and I couldn’t be happier with the results,” said David Glod, president and founder of Tour Edge. “The changes to this year’s model are not only cosmetic, but the personal feel of the putters has been improved substantially. I’m proud to engrave my name on every Exotics putter.”

To deliver the ultimate in feel and touch, the putters are entirely CNC milled from a solid block of carbon steel. The milled X-grip face pattern provides unprecedented feel and control on the green and reduces skidding. The responsive, pure feel and feedback of the face design translates to incredible accuracy and touch. In addition, each putter has a hand-rolled leading edge ensuring that each stroke glides smoothly through the ball, even in the longer grass on the fringe.

The David Glod Tour Series putters feature three tour inspired designs with a high-toe profile to eliminate the tendency to raise the toe at address, causing putts to go left of the hole. Further enhancing the setup, the putters feature a True Temper step-less steel shaft that provides a clean appearance at address and a firm, responsive feel.

Two sophisticated finishes are available, a silver-bead finish or black PVD finish in three models: V1.3 (full offset cavity back blade), V2.3 (half offset cavity blade), and V3.3 (semi-mallet). Priced at $249.99, the David Glod Tour Series putter are now available in stores nationwide. Each putter comes with Tour Edge’s lifetime warranty and a 30-day play guarantee. For more information, call (800) 515-3343 or visit www.touredge.com.

Pitchfix Twister Divot Tool Released

Pitchfix USA Introduces Twister, Golf’s Most Innovative Divot Tool
Patented Technology Gives U.S. Golfers Stylish, Easy Fix and Improved Greens

New York (April 7, 2015) – Pitchfix USA, a global market leader in switchblade divot tools and other golf related products, today announced the U.S. launch of its latest product release – the Pitchfix Twister. An innovative divot repair tool, the Twister makes ball mark repairs easy for golfers and helps reduce pitch mark repair damage to greens.

The Twister’s patent pending technology features three retractable metal prongs and makes it quick to use and safe to store for golfers. It comes in eight different color combinations, is highly customizable for promotional gifts and corporate branding and retails for just under $17. Currently, the Pitchfix products are available at many top U.S. retail outlets such as PGA Tour Superstores. For more information please visit Twister

“The Twister is truly a game-changing invention that will help improve golfers’ experience and reduce course damage,” said Bart Fokke, Vice President of Pitchfix USA and Canada. “We already have had great success with it in Europe and Asia and are very pleased to offer it now to the 26 million golfers in the United States.”

According to Pitchfix, when ball marks are repaired with traditional pitch forks very often the root structure is torn which creates an air pocket under the mark and a compacted piece of soil at the surface, making it difficult for the grass to regenerate and heal.

Pitchfix Twister’s patented technology allows Twister to work differently, says the company: the golfer simply pushes it in and out of the affected area, restoring the ground and relieving compaction simultaneously. This quick and simple procedure, according to Pitchfix, results in better repairs that recover quickly, making it virtually impossible to do damage with the tool.

According to Fokke, the Twister will play a critical role in improving the condition of greens and reducing ongoing maintenance costs to repair damage.

“Reports indicate that the average golfer leaves about 12 ball marks during a typical round of golf,” said Fokke. “That can result in more than 700,000 ball marks per year on an average golf course. Add to that the players who do not repair their ball marks and the high percentage of improper repair from conventional two prong divot tools, and the potential maintenance savings with Twister could be as much as ten percent.”

About Pitchfix
Founded in 2005, Pitchfix is the market leader for switchblade divot tools and other golf green related products in Europe and Asia and is renowned for its high standards in design and product quality. It aims to be the market leader in divot tools and other golf related products in the United States by designing, manufacturing and distributing an ever-growing line of high quality and innovative European designed products through selected distribution partners.

SpeedWay To Sell Nicklaus Golf Balls For Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals

Nicklaus Companies and Speedway Join Forces to Raise Funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals

Proceeds from Nicklaus Golf Ball Sales at Speedway Convenience Stores to Help Sick and Injured Kids

(NORTH PALM BEACH, FL) – Nicklaus Companies—the company which introduced premium golf balls designed, tested and perfected under the direct supervision of Jack Nicklaus—is announcing a partnership with Speedway LLC (Speedway) to raise funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals through the sale of Nicklaus Golf Balls at participating convenience store locations from May through July.

Sleeves of the popular Nicklaus “Blue” model ($6) will be displayed at the checkout of participating Speedway locations. One dollar from each purchase will be donated to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. This promotion continues the commitment of both organizations to support children’s charities. A number of Nicklaus-branded or licensed products have been introduced in recent years with a philanthropic tie-in, including water, lemonade, wine, sunglasses, and ice cream.

“More important than my legacy as a professional athlete is our family’s desire to truly make a difference in the lives of those in need,” said Nicklaus, a 2015 recipient of the Congressional Gold Medal, the highest honor Congress can bestow on an individual. “I have had the opportunity to meet and work with the leadership at Speedway, and they share in our commitment to help children, with a particular focus on pediatric healthcare. They have a long history with our mutual friends at Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, and through this partnership we have an opportunity to continue to positively affect the lives of millions of children and their families.”

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals raises funds and awareness for 170 member hospitals that treat more than 10 million kids each year. A donation made at a local Speedway directly supports the member hospital in that community. Speedway is the largest contributor to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in the convenience store industry. Since 1991, Speedway has contributed more than $68 million to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals through the generosity of their customers, vendors and employees.

“Speedway is one of the largest corporate sponsors for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals,” shared Speedway President Tony Kenney. “We are honored to partner with the Nicklaus Companies in support of this very worthwhile cause.”

A percentage of every dozen Nicklaus Golf Balls already supports the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation. The balls are engineered to benefit players of all skill levels, with the “Blue” models optimizing feel and distance by combining a high speed gradient core and a low spin mantle. Customers can also purchase “Black” and “White” models online at www.nicklaus.com. Golfers choose a ball according to the color of the tee markers from which they typically play. This color-coding system makes choosing the correct ball easy, benefitting scores and pace of play.

DST Golf’s Compressor Used by 2015 Zurich Classic Winner

DST Golf Compressor Used by 2015 Zurich Classic Winner

Curved Shaft Warm-up Clubs Taking the Tour by Storm

DST Golf – developer of award-winning warm-up clubs featuring patent-pending Delayed Strike Technology – reports that the company’s revolutionary Compressor club was used for warm-up and practice by the winner of the 2015 Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Currently sixth in the Official World Golf Rankings, the British player has been training with the Compressor since before the Masters, where he recorded a strong second place finish. Available in wedge and 8-iron lofts, the clubs are designed to teach players how to arrive at the optimal impact position by creating the ideal line of tension to correctly compress the ball. Over 70 players on the PGA, LPGA, Symetra and Web.com Tours have adopted DST Clubs as part of their pre-tournament warm-up routine.

“It’s no surprise so many Tour players are using our clubs, as they were designed based on a careful study of the best ball strikers in history.” says DST Golf Founder and CEO Bertie Cordle. “The importance of the line of tension has largely been overlooked in teaching players about the correct hand and body alignment at impact. Our clubs naturally facilitate the correct line and angle needed for a solid strike with each swing.”

Following the launch of DST Golf clubs at the PGA Merchandise Show in January 2015, both the Compressor and CR-10 clubs have received the official recognition and approval of the PGAs of Europe. The curved shaft, an amended sole angle and a Hand Position Marker are the key elements that make the Compressor the perfect teaching and training tool for any golfer.

In addition to the DST Compressor, the company’s  CR-10 clubs help enable a gradual move to a traditional club by incorporating the amended sole angle and hand alignment marker of the Compressor with a standard shaft. The specific sole angle of the CR-10 helps players locate, train and perfect the optimum club head movement through impact before assuming use of their own clubs.

To find out more about DST Golf, including access to in-depth technology videos and player testimonials, visit www.dstgolf.com.

GAbout DST Golf

Based in Salisbury, England, DST Golf was founded by former European Challenge Tour player, Bertie Cordle in 2013. Cordle taught at a number of top flight golf academies in the UK, Portugal and Germany and spent three years studying the biomechanics of ball striking which culminated in the design and development of DST Golf’s patent pending technology.
